This is my first post on what I hope will be a journal of my sewing, which I've returned to after many years.
My interest was rekindled after seeing the beautiful Chatelaine designs by Martina Weber, it was one of the those moments of 'must have' and today after much' humming and arrring' over which design to buy I decided to start with 'The Medieval Town Mandala chart which arrived this morning.
With a cup of tea, pencil and paper in hand I started my shopping list and decided to buy the threads etc to complete the centre design area, this took a bit of sorting out as the threads were being ordered from one company whilst the Swarvoski and Delica's were ordered from two other companies. I'm keeping my fingers crossed I'll have delivery tomorrow. There was one thread which my supplier did not stock, the Thread Gatherer Silken Pearl 30/3 so I had to order the DMC instead, I'm not sure how this will effect the final finish of the design, Thread Gatherer silk n Colours 055 Camouflage was also out of stock with no date given for restocking, so here again I had to resort to the DMC.
I'm feeling quite excited and can't wait to see the delicious threads and start sewing, it does help knowing I've had my eye test this week and my new glasses will be ready for pick up this week so cross fingers I'll be seeing things with more clarity.
